poetry (in motion)

is something that is graceful

and beautiful to observe.


When not acting in total chaos as in last week’s post…

Seagulls can provide some extraordinarily…

…graceful and beautiful photo opportunities.







complete disorder and confusion

Total confusion and chaos reigns among…

…a flock of seagulls where

food is concerned.








Most of my MCoW entries have focussed on

and around the Geelong area.

Warrnambool’s forecast population for 2021, is 37,225.

This is expected to increase by 15-20,000 tourists

during the Christmas – January school holiday period.

Although COVID may impact that figure this year.

Warrnambool is situated right on the

Victoria’s South West Coast

Bass Strait making a nice backdrop

in this image.

Public transport train services connect

Warrnambool to Geelong and Melbourne.

This morning I was contemplating photos

for his post…

…when I discovered these images from our second winter

in the Geelong region.



Not a lot has changed in the intervening years.


My Kodak DX7590 Digital Zoom was

my pride and joy in 2007.

These days it would be lucky if its

memory card could hold one photo.

How times change.

The Eastern Beach sidewalk…

…used by walkers…


…walking alone…

…or watching the world pass by

while feeding the birds…

…or walking with family and friends,

 or walking to sunbake.






This week I decided on a walk around Corio Bay.

Many images have been published previously,

however, not all on one post.

Beginning at my favourite sunrise spot,

Griffin Gully Pier.

Blue hour at Geelong.

Lights on the left light up the restaurant

at the end of Cunningham Pier.

Entrance to Cunningham Pier.


My photo may not do this scene justice, however,

I think this is one of the prettiest parts of Geelong.

No matter what time of day or season

of the year I always think it worth a stop

for an image or two.


Around 200 metres past Cunningham Pier

we come upon the Geelong Ferris Wheel.

The Ferris Wheel does not operate all year.

In fact it is only a few weeks since it

was erected for the summer.



The Ferris Wheel is located at the western end

of Eastern Beach which is located behind

the camera and to the left of this shot.



Eastern Beach, a nice sandy beach for the young.

The semi-circle out into the bay according to Google

is the Eastern Beach Public Swimming Pool.

All my life I thought it was called the Promenade.

Whatever its name there area is designed

to be family friendly.
